The Willis C. Campbell Club

Across the United States and around the world, hundreds of orthopaedic surgeons are part of The Willis C. Campbell Club. Upon completing a UTHSC-Campbell Clinic Orthopaedic Surgery Residency or Fellowship, they have gone on to be physician-leaders, pioneers and sought-after mentors in the field of orthopaedic surgery, moving lives in countless ways.

Many things make your Campbell training experience unique—rigorous operating room training, world-renowned faculty, and clinical research excellence are just the start.

It’s also the family. After all, you can always “call home.”

Each year, the Campbell Clinic Foundation offers opportunities to connect with Campbell alumni and staff, enhance your career, and support current and future residents and fellows.

This includes:


To enjoy all alumni benefits, be sure you are a current member of the Campbell Club!

Thank you for your continued support of the Campbell Clinic Foundation and for sustaining surgeon education, orthopaedic research, and community healthcare. You are vital members of our family.

Your membership and gifts are vital to our programs, patients, and those future surgeons who will one day, too, call themselves “Campbell alumni.”

Please send updates and news to the Campbell Clinic Foundation so we can share and celebrate with the rest of the Campbell family!

A Message from The Willis C. Campbell Club President

There has never been a more important time to support the Campbell Clinic Foundation.

Musculoskeletal disease or injury is the leading cause of disability in the United States — and the number one reason for doctor visits. It’s true: One in seven Americans has a muscular or skeletal impairment, and one in three is affected by arthritis. A fracture requiring orthopaedic treatment occurs approximately every 14 seconds in the U.S. Half of all Americans will be treated for a fractured bone before they are 65.

Conditions such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, back pain, spinal disorders, fractures, and overuse soft tissue injuries affect millions of people, and will become more and more common as Baby Boomers age. Many children also suffer from crippling bone and joint diseases that prevent them from leading full and healthy lives.

The Foundation’s mission of enhancing the quality of life through the science of orthopaedic medicine is more important than ever. We are grateful to be able to serve.
